trade in your old watches

Think about your least-worn luxury watch. When's the last time you looked at it? When's the last time you even thought about it? It's probably been a while, right? That's okay. You're busy and your luxury watches have to understand that you have a lot of responsibilities that take you out of the house and away from your watches.

But how do you think your neglected luxury watches feel about that? Do you think they spend that time alone thinking about when you first bought them and would wear them regularly, showing them off at this or that event and soaking up all of the compliments and admiration they brought you?

Yeah, that's right. Now it suddenly doesn't feel so good.

At WatchMaxx, we think that every luxury watch deserves a good home where it will be loved and appreciated. That's why we started our luxury watch trade-in program. We're helping to rehome these lonely watches so that they can find a wrist that will show them the love they deserve.

It just so happens that this trade-in program benefits you, too. As the tradee, you'll receive a fair value for your watch. And you know what that means... You can buy more watches!

How the Watch Trade-In Program Works

We believe that all luxury watches are unique and beautiful and worthy of love. The trade-in program gives these beautiful pieces the opportunity to be appreciated again in a new home.

By trading in your unwanted luxury watches, you're helping them find a place again where they are welcomed and valued. And that's a great thing that you should feel good about.

The process itself is actually pretty simple. Here's a breakdown of the steps:

Go to and click on the “Trade-In” link at the top of the page or in the mobile menu.

This will take you to a screen with all of the necessary information along with a form for you to fill out to get things started. 

  1. Describe your watch by filling out the form and uploading images. Tell us everything you can about it and be as wordy as you want. We like that. 

  2. Within 3 days, we’ll get back to you with an estimate of how much your watch is worth. But remember, it’s just an estimate and not the finalized price. 

  3. Pack your watch safely and send it to the address we provide. 

  4. Once we get your watch, we’ll inspect its authenticity and condition. Then we’ll get back to you with our offer. 

  5. Finally, we’ll either send you a check or give you store credit if you agree to the price.

The True Value of Luxury Watches

We strongly believe that the value of a luxury watch goes way beyond dollars and cents. These watches represent so much more. They tell a story of who we are, where we come from, and what we’ve accomplished.

Luxury watches are a reflection of our personal style and taste. They are a way to show the world that we mean business. They give us confidence and make us feel good about ourselves.

And that’s why we think every luxury watch deserves a good home. Because when you trade in your watches, you’re not just getting rid of them. You’re giving them a chance to be loved again.

Of course, all that being said, we still actually do place a monetary value on these watches. You can rest assured that you'll get a fair price for your trade-ins. We just don't tell the watches.

Check or Store Credit?

The hardest part about trading in your beloved luxury watch is deciding what to do with the money you get for it. We absolutely can, and will, send you a check for the full value of your piece when we accept it. But is that what you really want?

Think about it. You get a check, you deposit it into your bank account, and then you slowly whittle it away on things like groceries, gas, bills, packs of novelty trading cards hoping to find a rare holograph edition from one of them, etc. Before you know it, the money is spent and your wrist is bare.

When you accept your payment in store credit, that's a one-way ticket to New Watch City! You can use your trade-in funds to get a brand new watch or two. Maybe you want to upgrade to a newer model of your current watch. Maybe you want to buy a completely different brand. Maybe you just want to buy more watches because you're obsessed with watches and can't help it. We get it, we're obsessed too.

Or maybe you're looking to pay it forward and you want to adopt a pre-loved luxury watch of your own. Just head over to our Pre-Owned section and find a watch that you want to give a new forever home.

The choice is yours, but we think you know what you should do.

Ready to get started? Head on over to and click on the “Trade-In” link in the main menu. We can't wait to help you find your next luxury watch!
